I second this, with the caveat that an adapter board which doesn't
properly terminate the high ID/data pins can be a source of all sorts of
pain for a SCSI newbie.  Specifically, get an SCA adapter board that has a
50-pin connector directly on it, rather than daisy-chaining an SCA/68-pin
with a 68-pin/50-pin adapter.
